EDUC 304 - Methods for Teaching Elementary Language Arts

Credits: (3)
Instructional Method: Three hours lecture.
Pre- or Corequisites: EDRD 314 ; 2.5 G.P.A. in previous course work.
The language arts integrate a complex set of skills through which children learn how to study the world, pursue the topics and ideas that interest them, compose ideas and arguments, and express their ideas in creative ways.  This course focuses on principles and practices of comprehensive approaches to language arts instruction and the social and global contexts in which they are embedded and provided. Students will learn how children acquire and develop literacy skills, how to assess those skills, and how to plan effectively to ensure their growth and development.  Through best-practice strategies and high-quality children’s literature, students will study ways to effectively integrate oral language (speaking and listening), reading, writing, word study, and critical and visual literacy to meet the needs of diverse students.
